Jiangjú is a game of the standoff that comes at the end of a long story of high tension, betrayal, and violent crime, modelled after Hong Kong cinema of the 90s. The word translates in English, roughly, to Impasse.

In Jiangjú, you and up to seven of your friends are sitting around the table, holding guns (your fingers) and trying to piece together who has damaged loyalties, who’s on your side, who’s not, and what you can possibly say to get the gun that’s pointed at you to point elsewhere.


In the model of hidden-information role games, Jiangjú seeks to avoid player eliminations and keep the game fast-paced. The game requires no judge or administrator to keep the game going, and can scale from three players all the way up to eight.

Official Release Date: November 7, 2016
